Gong Launching Tour In Memory Of Daevid Allen (A Top Story)
Allen died of cancer in March, aged 77. Before his passing he sent a message to the latest incarnation of his band, saying: "I am 100% behind you and I wish you huge success in every way you decide to measure that success. At last I am free to let go of it. It is up to you guys to carry it into unknown heights and depths, far beyond anything I could ever imagine myself."
The band say in a statement: "When it became clear that Daevid wouldn't tour again, we all decided it was imperative that Gong continued. It was Daevid's passionate wish.
"So here we are on the road once again, fellow travellers. Fill up your teapots and come join the ride! Love and peace." Check out the dates and tour poster - here.
